Samsung and LG are still working on delivering the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to many of their devices. Fortunately, the list seems to be going longer by the day as new reports suggest that devices such as the LG G2 and the Samsung Galaxy S5 are now in line to receive the update. It has been several months since Google release the Android 6.0 Marshmallow firmware so the pressure is on for OEMs to keep up.
For the Samsung Galaxy S5, Android Origin reports that T-Mobile is rolling out the official update. The Over-the-Air release should be delivered to subscribers in the next few weeks. People will just need to wait for the installation prompt to update. They can also check for the update manually by simply going to Settings > Check for Software updates. However, users are advised to free up some memory since the update could take considerable storage.
As for the LG G2, Yibada reports that the OTA is inevitable as the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update has been spotted on a benchmarking Hungarian website Napidroid. This could only mean one thing: the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update release for LG G2 could be just around the corner. People can wait for the download prompt as well. They can also check their phone’s settings to update manually.
As with other Android updates, users must stay tuned for the final release schedules. They should charge the devices fully before proceeding with the update to avoid power interruptions. It is also best to connect to a secure WiFi or cellular connection.
